    Take it for what its worth... but a friend who's dad is high up the food chain at Nike said that KD actually tore his achilles and they dont want the media to know yet.

    Ya I'm not buying that for a second. Horrible way to run things if that's true and we haven't seen anything like that from Myers/Kerr.

    It's been said before, Aminu played 7+ minutes. I don't buy at all that that 7 minutes would've cost us the game. You don't sit your starters in the playoffs.

    You need them and their confidence for the next round. I think Terry was SMART for starting Aminu and Hark. He pulled them when they weren't playing well and adjusted.

    Now he's being chastised for it.

    But anyway, this thread is about Durant's Achilles er.. Calf injury..

    Really? Stotts coached us to the WCF.

    Period.

    Cats need to stop derailing this thread. It's about Durant.

    It may not be their choice. The networks could be worried about TV ratings, and the bookies are worried about a sudden shift in the odds/betting patterns. We know Silver cares deeply about the former, and I have my suspicions about the latter.

    Bump.

    I rarely bump old threads, but this seems deserving. Something is up with KD. Maybe he is hurt worse than he claimed, maybe he is protecting his FA value, or maybe they realized they play better team ball without him!

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    They could be hiding something, nothing's impossible--but even hamstring strains can hold a player out this long with an uncertain return time. Nothing that's happened so far is particularly suspicious.

    the kd injury seems far worse than they are letting on. why won't they come clean? if the league requires disclosure, I am sure they can find a way around telling the truth but what is the advantage?

    The difference i'm hearing is the way they responded to Cousin's injury compared to Durant. When Cousins got hurt Kerr was immediately saying it was not good at all. They responded to Durant's injury with it's a strain and he will be fine. Of course the Blazers didn't put them in a position to need to hurry him back either. So there is that.

    IIRC, Clyde Drexler had a hamstring injury one year that kept him out of action for a couple of months. It can be a pretty significant injury

    Hamstring injuries are a whole different animal than a calf strain tho.

    I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that Durant partially tore his Achilles.

    And you have done your best to make it that way and why I seldom post in this forum anymore. Since I have come to this forum I have seen very few basketball related posts come from you and instead see more posts personally talking about other posters.You guys do play the victim card a bit to often as it's become like the boy that cried wolf. Have a nice summer

    For you conspiracy theorists, if Durant has a torn achilles then why hasn't he had surgery yet so he could start his rehab and decrease his time before he can return. Where are the tin foil hats being handed out?

    Could he actually have a tear in his calf muscle?

    Because I think it is only partially torn. For a partial tear: You may need surgery. Instead of surgery, you may need to wear a cast, leg brace, splint, or boot for about 6 weeks.

    Treatment for mild Achilles tendon problems includes rest, over-the-counter pain medicine, and stretching exercises. You may need to wear well-cushioned shoes and change the way you play sports so that you reduce stress on the tendon. Early treatment works best and can help prevent more injury. Orthotic shoe devices can also help reduce stress on the tendon.

    Even in mild cases, it can take weeks to months of rest for the tendon to repair itself. It's important to be patient and not return too soon to sports and activities that stress the tendon.

    Treatment for severe problems, such as a torn or ruptured tendon, may include surgery or a cast, splint, brace, walking boot, or other device that keeps the lower leg and ankle from moving. Exercise, either in physical therapy or in a rehab program, can help the lower leg and ankle get strong and flexible again. The tendon will take weeks to months to heal.

    Although treatment for Achilles tendon problems takes time, it usually works. Most people can return to sports and other activities.
